Problems with seagate barracuda 80 GB SATA


I have got a P4 computer with Seagate Barracuda 80 GB SATA harddisk. The problem is that it is very slow.

It takes more than 3 minutes to load Windows XP. It is not an old one, I have bought it only 3 months ago. It was slow from day one.

Whereas, I have another pc which is a P3 with Seagate Barracuda 80 GB ATA installed. This PC performs alot better than the former. Windows XP loads within a minute. Game loading is also impressive.

I am really confused. Plzzzzzzzzz Help.

Any advice will be apprciated.

Thnx alot!

  1. Is the Seagate SATA 3.0 or 1.5? Is the board connection 3.0 or 1.5? If you haven't done so recently, I'd do a disk clean and defrag. What the machine running faster with the old hdd or is this a new build? Have you tried a different hdd?
